Our Sponsors


Our major fundraiser helps provide a natural area and nature education for Oak Cliff and North Texas. Entry and activities are always free. Visitors enjoy a relaxing stroll, attend a nature walk, or pause and meditate.  Students joyfully learn about the prairie ecosystem and see firsthand the relationships between species. As John Muir said, “When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the universe”.
